Trade Me Anything VIII: #9

One of the guys who got into the blogging game right around the same time I did was Kevin, who runs Orioles Card "O" the Day, which has been published nearly every damn day since 2008. He does some excellent work over there, and he send a rather large package what seems like an eternity ago.

Giving:
Fond Farewells #FF-CR Cal Ripken, Jr.

#US-65 Chad Qualls Black Border (29/63)

#US-188 Paul Maholm Red Hot Foil

#US-169 Chone Figgins Gold (1190/2014)

#US-206 Chris Perez Gold (0140/2014)

Looks like someone's about to get some Dodgers traded to them.

Getting:
1972 Topps Brewers #386 Jim Colborn, #359 Jon Pavletich, #255 Jim Lonborg

If you look closely at the Lonborg top loader, you can see a once-living thing that came along for the ride.

2014 Topps Heritage #THC-489 Jean Segura Chrome (615/999)


A Starting Lineup figurine of... (Try to take a guess before scrolling. A fan favorite he was not.)






















Marc Newfield!

I'll be willing to bet even most die-hard Brewers fans would struggle to remember Newfield, but the team was so bad when he was here that he warranted inclusion in the Starting Lineup lineup. They had to pick somebody, right? Newfield actually played more games for Milwaukee than he did Seattle or San Diego, with his stint here straddling the AL-to-NL changeover.

Three Brachs Peppermint Christmas Tree Nougats

Man, these were always around when I was a kid. It's been a long time since I had one.

Mad Libs book

Watch out, one of these nights I'm going to have a Mad Libs party on Twitter.

Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem DVD

Wow, that's cool. I've never seen any of the films in this crossover franchise, but I'm guessing I won't need to have seen the first AVP to enjoy this one. Props on this being a widescreen copy, too. I've probably held this in my had at a used bookstore once or twice, but it's always that piece of shit pan-and-scan.

Thanks for the awesome stuff, Kevin! Heavy on the "anything" plus some sweet cards is a recipe for success.
